Dave Spikey: Juggling on a Motorbike

Dave had been working in the NHS for 19 years as a Biomedical Scientist when in 1987 someone uttered the immortal words, “You’re really funny, you should be a comedian” and for some reason, he took them seriously!!

Months later he won the talent show Stairway to the Stars with a routine about a juggler on a motorbike.

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of his comedy career, Dave looks back on his journey from working class kid to Chief Biomedical Scientist to comedy performer / writer via Phoenix NightsEight out of Ten CatsBullseyeDead Man WedsMagnoliaThe Royal Variety Show and Parkinson.

He often reflects that maybe none of this would have happened and he might still be looking down his microscope today if it wasn’t for the juggler on the motorbike!
